Join us for our 2nd Annual Grain Research Tour. This year's guest speaker, Julie Dawson, is a postdoctoral research associate at Cornell University, and will be covering the basics of on-farm variety trials and variety selection for wheat and other small grains. Researchers and farmers who have been participating in on-farm trials and selection will describe their experience and provide practical guidance.

We'll be touring our research trials, which includes over 1,000 plots of spring and winter wheat, heirloom wheat, spring and winter barley, flax and oats. We also have small grain trials on planting dates, weed control and organic fertility.
